, yankees orioles game 5 today. gave us quite a show. struggling alex rodriguez, the designated center benched in five of eric chavez. 5th inning no score. yankees raoul ibanez pokes one into right field. here comes mark teixeira. he will score yankees leading 1- 0. 2-0 yankees in the 7th. curtis granderson back away gone. a second deck shot into right field enough for cc sabathia a complete game. struck out 9 only gave up one run. yankees win. yankees win final 3-1. they are going to play the tigers in the alcs saturday. >>> now, the as were supposed to lose 100 games, remember? no. they defied all the odds. they won the rest of the last day of the regular season. it took a epic pitching performance by justin verlander just to stop them. talk about fan appreciation. nobody wanted to leave the coliseum last night after the tigers beat the as. >> let's go oakland! >> yup. the fans wanted a curtain call. they would have had like to have advanced to the alcs but the as really appreciated the fan support. >> we battle for them all year gave it our all for them and they did the same for us.
